The place has a definite nice beer vibe. Volo came recommended and since my visit was during their "cask days", I stopped in to see what it was all about. The ask menu, listed 17, but only a select 5-7 were still available. The wait staff recommended I stop by later in the week when they tap some more, but my trip wouldn't allow a second visit.

In all, what was on cask was impressive, bitters, R.I.P, and even a mild!! And what I tried was definitely very drinkable. I'm glad I stopped by, and would recommend the bar to anyone looking for a nice selection.

Food: N/A. I had dinner previously elsewhere and came for the beer only.

Wait staff: Knowledgeable. They know their beer and it was served in the proper glassware.

Atmosphere: Nice. Quaint.

The only drawback, (beware) don't park in the neighborhood behind the bar, unless you have a permit.

Cafe Volo is a great place. Many craft beers from Canada, the USA, Belgium and around the world on tap and bottles. They even had cask ale the evening we went.

The food (Italian) was killer and the mussels, while being the smallest portion I’ve ever received, were also the best by far I’ve ever had. The staff was fast, friendly and efficient.

Make sure to make reservations if you plan to go Friday or Saturday night as the place is VERY small and it gets crowded beyond belief. Anyone with claustrophobia may want to go at a time when it’s less likely to be very crowded. Having said that, it’s worth the crowd.

I will definitely go again.
